Rom that just works

I am looking for a Rom that just works when I need it to. I am all to upset with those that I have tried including Mighty, Mighty-Silence and some others including the stock. Maybe it is just windows mobile, but when I press a button I expect it to work, I don't expect to have screens flashing around, I don't expect when I make a call for the radio to automatically turn off, or when I am at work and pick up my phone to notice the radio randomly turned itself off and I have 30 voice mails. I don't know when it became acceptable for companies to put out a product that doesn't fully work, but I guess that is the standards people have today.

I just want something that works and something that is not bloated, it needs to be light. any suggestions.

Re: Rom that just works

are you just loading roms or are you using the kitchen versions? a kitchen may get you what you want.

Re: Rom that just works

I have been running the sprint stock rom (manilla disabled) on my replacement phone since april, and I've done some crazy stuff to it where I thought for sure I needed to hard-reset, but nope, everytime i'm able to fix it or bring it back to life.

Re: Rom that just works

WOW!!! another one of these threads.... I have had no problems with my TP at all. MIGHTY/SILENCE is a great ROm where everythin "just works". LIKe NOIR posted, you should take a look at other ROMs. Try different things with your phone. Try different radios, ROMs, your own customizations and do some research. Ask for help, alot of people are here to help.

Re: Rom that just works

I mean if you guys are saying it works for you, then you simply must have lower standard on quality than I do. Ive tried the canon of roms and they all pretty much suck with the stock being the worst.

I just expect a phone to work, when I press a button on the screen, I expect it to do what it is intended to do. Not do something else or be incredibly laggy in its operation.

I have great reception, it just randomly turns off at times. Same problem on numerous roms. Brother and friend have a similar problem on his TP.
